Both filled with trials and tribulations. Both still with the storm behind their eyes.... After talks of tall tales and dreams of calmer waters, they discovered they had something else in common, their love of books, specifically ones with the same tenacity for surviving what the world has thrown at them as they do ... As time goes on the seas become tumultuous, the winds tortuous. Storm after storm thrashed upon our two sailors, finally pulling one hand from the other... after what felt like an eternity, the sun broke through the clouds, revealing only one remain...Red chose that day to carry on the dream that they envisioned together so long ago in that run down tavern.. as long as the adventures, the stories are shared they will be remembered.. and they will live on.
